  journal={IEEE Trans. Geoscience and Remote Sensing},
Landmines are generally constructed such that they posses a high level of geometric symmetry and are then buried in a manner that preserves this symmetry. The scattered response of such a symmetric target will likewise exhibit the symmetry of the target, as well as the electromagnetic reciprocity exhibited by all scatterers. Group theory provides a mathematic tool for describing geometric symmetry, and it can likewise be used to describe the symmetries inherent in the bistatic scattering from… CONTINUE READING
